How many KB's down and Up do I need to play games online?


Recommended Posts

I'm kind of concerned about something that I didn't realize would be a problem at first. I just ordered wireless internet thats 768k downloand and 768k upload. It averages 90K both ways and never dips below according to the few customers I've spoke to so far. I realize that's not as fast as most of you folks but I thought it would be a great upgrade from Satellite and my main reason to switch over to wireless was in hopes of satisfactory game play online for those twitch FPS games where you need a sub 80ms ping to compete. I've now been told by quite a few people that it won't be fast enough to play FPS online games? They were telling me I need atleast twice that fast??

I know you guys will know because theres a lot of real guru's here and I'm not sure I was informed correctly..  :angry2::icon_pale: Atleast I sure hope not.

If anyone can enlighten me on this I would really appreciate it. I know it's a very simpleton question but I really no have no idea and I'm concerned now. So thanks for your help.
